Former Prosecutors Defending Clients in Wyoming and South Dakota
When relationships turn ugly, protection orders and stalking charges can leave you feeling like there is nowhere you can go for help. Our skilled criminal defense team knows how to handle these emotionally charged allegations, and can help you get a fair result.
Sometimes a person charged with stalking may not realize that what they have done may be considered criminal behavior. Other times, stalking charges come only a after long, contentious breakdown of a relationship and the entry of a protective order. Sending text messages, driving by someone's home or place of employment and sending messages via Facebook or Twitter may seem harmless, but if the recipient contacts the police, all of these things can be used against you.
When you find yourself facing stalking charges, you need an experienced criminal defense team willing to wade into the history and help you present your strongest defense. Our founder, Attorney Christina L. Williams, is a former prosecutor with over 15 years of courtroom experience in Wyoming and South Dakota. She has seen the other side of stalking charges and convictions, and she knows what to look for. With Christina at the helm our team will review your case objectively and provide you an honest assessment, so that you know whether to take a plea or fight for a not-guilty verdict at trial.
